Dr. Kraus met me on my entrance to Johan- nesburg and rode by my side to the gov- emment unices, where he introduced me to the heads of tne several departments, all of whom acceded to my request that they would continue to carry on their re- gpective duties until they could be re- licved of them.

London, June 1.—The war office has re ceived from Lord Roberts a dispatch dated Uermistown, saying: The brunt of me lighting fell upon lan Hamiltons column. I have sent him, as already mentioned, to work around to the west of Johannes burg in support of r rench s cavalry, whic l waa direcieu to go north near the road leauing to Pretoria, a have not heard from French yet, but Hamilton, in a report which has just reached tue, states that at about 1 o'clock in the afternoon he found his way blocked by the enemy strongly posted on some kopjes and ridges three miles south of the Rand. They had two heavy guns and several field guns and pom-poms. Hamilton forthwith attacked. The right was led by the Gordons, who, after capturing one extremity of the ridge, wheeled around and worked along it until after dark, clearing it of the en emy, who fought most obstinately. The chief share in the action fell to the Gor dons, whose gallant advance excited me admiration of all. Hamilton is now at Florida, due west of Johannesburg, and French is a few miles further to the northeast. The Gor dons, the cavalry, the mounted infantry and tile Seventh division are holding tile heights of the town. The Eleventh di vision, both Batteries H and G and the heavy artillery are south of Johannes burg.

Trade Report. Bradstreet's weekly report says: Readjustments of price quotations to meet the changed condition of supply and demand are still the leading fea tures of the general trade. In volume the business doing is of a between sea son character, improvement In some lines being counterbalanced by Increas ed dullness In other branches. That the basic conditions of the trade are in the main of a favorable nature, how ever, is proved by this continued good railroad earning returns which come to hand. The fact seemB to be that the volume of business offered the trans portation interests of the country con tinues considerably In excess of a year ago. Crop reports are relatively most favorable as regards corn and oats. In the southwest wheat crop prospects are still maintained at a high average. In the northwest wheat has been helped by late rains, but owing to their late arrival It is not certain how much ben efit was obtained thereby. Most prices are lower on the week, wheat noting a fractional drop, de spite unfavorable French crop reports, where an enormous reduction in yield Is predicted, and also rather blue re ports from the northwest early in the week, mended in some respects by the rains mentioned. Pork products have sympathized with the downward ten dency of values, aided thereby by in creased receipts of hogs. Some further liquidation has, been noted In cotton, and the price has sunk to 9c. In textiles the situation is rath er depressed, although some improve ment in re-orders for dry goods Is not ed at leading jobbing centers. Print Moths have been marked down by the Fall River committee, but this Is mere ly a tardy recognition of hitherto known facts. Manufacturers of woolen goods are out of the market for raw wool, and the outlook at present favors the light weight woolens opening at lower values. Boots and shoes are dull, and a number of eastern factories are short of orders. The hand to mouth domestic demand for iron and steel continues, but the number of small orders received Is tak en to Indicate that consumers are prac tically bare of stocks, and any general shutdown for a month's time, such as Is proposed, might lead to a scramble for tradi supplies. Export business continues good, al though limited by scarcity of freight room. Southern pig and steel rails note the most Inquiry. The situation in the pipe market is no better, and plates.are weaker. Concessions of fractions of a dollar are apparently eas ily obtained for pig iron, but through out the trade the feeling Is rather more cheerful, the feeling being that lower prices will on the one hand en courage consumptive demand, and on the other hand tend to restrict produc tion by less economical plants. The settlement of the wage situation this year might also be a possible source of restriction of production. Wheat (including flour) shipments for the week aggregate 4,533,140 bush els, against 3,698,968 bushels last week 3,596,065 bushels in the corresponding week of 1899, and 5,247,085 in 1898. Since July 1 tills season the exports of wheat aggregate 182,916,596 bushels against 217,065,374 bushels last year and 216,145,055 bushels In 1897-98. Business failures for the week in the United States number 135, as compar ed with 167 last week, 120 in this week a year ago, and 178 in 1898. Business failures in Canada for the week num her 21, as compared with 17 last week, 18 in this week a year ago, and 21 In 1898. Cliaalng Insurgents In Albay. Manila, June 1.—Lieutenant Jens Estedje, of the Forty-seventh volunteers, commanding a scouting party in the southern part of Albay province, had several engagements with insurgents, which 17 of the enemy were killed and 23, including a captain, were captured. Six explosive bombs and a number of val liable insurgent documents also fell into the hands of the American scouts, who burned the town of Yubi, headquraters of the rebels. Sergeant Brickley was killed during a light engagement near Higmo, in the province of Albay, yester day.

The United States Department of Agriculture will make an effort at the Faria Exposition to make the people of Europe realize the value of the Ameri can corn or maize as an article of food, by having a party there to cook it In all the various ways In which our people like It, and to distribute samples of it to tempt the appetite of those who have never tested It at the table, but have thought It only fit to use for fat tening cattle and swine. We suppose the Rhode Island johnny cake, Boaton corn bread, Carolina pone and tbe Yankee muah, under whatever name it may be known In other States, will be served daily, and we hope they will not omit tbe ''baked Indian" pudding, which la auch a favorite In New Eng land. It Is a good work, for while we have not thought It desirable to In crease our exports of com for stock feeding In other countries, so long as we could use It at home for the same purpose, gnd sell them our meats, if we can get them to appreciate It as a food for the human race, they will buy It. although prices may be advanced to a point where they cannot afford to use It for stock feed. And we know that the corn crop of this country can be largely Increased as the demand may Increase, and that as the value of the ■talks becomes bette rknown, and they are more carefully saved for forage In the corn-growing sections, the crop will become more profitable. Scientists say that 40 per cent of the feeding value Qf the corn crop |s In the stalks when properly cared for, yet where the moat corn has ben grown this part of tbe crop has often been wasted, or utilized only In a careless fashion that saved but a small portion of It The new uses that are being fouud for the pith of tbe stalk, and the grinding of the outer hard shell Into a meal, are Industries which seem to promise now to give an Increased value to the corn stover.— American Cultivator. In la To Pump Water Into the Barn. Some pumps need only a little eleva tion to make It possible to run the water by a spout right Into the barn, where tbe cattle can drink without being exposed to cold or Btorms. The cut shows a pump raised and the ele vated platform boxed in, the Interior PUMPING INTO THE BARN. being filled with bay to keep the pump from freezing. This la not a difficult |ob, and the results are often worth a great deal during a single winter even. The pump can he lowered again for mmmer use If desired, setting the ele vated platform away for use again tbe following winter. Where water can be run into the barn in the way suggested, It will, on standing a while, acquire the temperature of the barn, being then much more suitable for cows to drink, while the latter will also be saved the exposure to cold winds. Popular Breeds of Geese. The most popular breeds of geese are the Toulouse, Enibdcn and Chinese. The first named are gray, of excellent proportion in breast and body generally. The Ernbden are white, somewhat longer In the leg, but posacasl n g many cbaracterls tics worthy of attention. Both of these breeds combine all that la KMBDEN goose, necessary In geese. The Chinese are "pretty," perhaps, In point of feather, but as a table bird they do not compare with either of those named above. of How to Make a Handsome Lawn. Lawn-making is not so difficult as most persous seem to think. You must begin right If you would atuln a sat (■factory degree of Bucceas. The first tlilug to do is to grade tbe ground evenly. Most persons prefer a lawn that slopes away from house to road In tn almost Imperceptible Incline of sur face. Such a lawn is easier to make than a level one, because any little de parture from a perfectly even surface will G<f"far less noticeable. To secure the necessary slope, earth will have to be filled In near tbe bouae If tbe lot Is a imperatively level one. Wherever there has been an excavation made for tbe bouae walls or a cellar there will generally be enough earth near the bouse to furnish all the filling need ed in making tbe required slope. This toll, which Is almost always bard, ihould be worked over until It la aa fine ind mellow as possible, for a good lawn can not be made from a soli that Is coarse and lumpy. If tbe soil la not rich. It should be ■tad* so. I would advise tbe use of w meal la liberal Quantity la prefer cnee to Darnyard rertlltzef, because I» never Introduces the seeds of weeds | Into the lawa. as manure from the sta» bles Is very sure to do. Coarse bone meal. 1 b tbe proportion of a half pound | to each square yard, will give a soil of ordinary quality strength enough to produce an excellent growth of grass.— Eben B. Rexford, In the New Lippin cott Packing Butter. The firkins or tubs should be made of white oak and new. They are aoaked . In cold water for twelve hours, while 1 the butter Is waiting for the final work- i ing, then are eoaked in boiling water, ! rinsed and rubbed with fine salt on the inside. Tbe butter is then packed In layers of three Inches, with salt lightly sprinkled over each, says tbe Country Gentleman. The pall or tub Is then filled to a quarter of an Inch of the top and a clean new cover of cheesecloth la laid on the butter. This cover should be an Inch larger each way than the tub, leaving a margin to be turned over. The cloth le covered with fine salt and the edge of the cloth la turned over It The pall la then even full, no air spare left The cover, previously treated as the tub has been, ta laid on and fastened down securely. Butter well made and thus packed as soon as made and kept In a cool, clean place will keep six months or. even a year and come out as good at—to some tastes better than—when It wsa packed.

He won the first prize of x £50 In hlz class at the recent Birmingham Shorthorn Show, and was sold for 510 guineas, or nearly $2.700. _ Ante on Fruit Trees. There Is more or lees complaint In fruit sections about the ravages of ante on cherry trees. The grower who thinks that ants are making trouble for him does not observe very closely, or he would notice that tbe ants are not only harmless, but do much good. The real enemy Is the minute aphis, which frequently attacks the young growth cherry trees, sucking the sap through the easily pierced bark. As these Insects are about the same color as tbe bark, they are readily overlook ed, while the ant which follows and eats tbe exuding sap are noticed. To rid the tree of the real pest, tbe aphis, spray with bordeaux mixture or kero sene emulsion. Tbe aphis feed on the tender growth early In the season, of ten before the tree puts out many leaves, so that they must he closely watched, or they will will do consider able harm. Pronina; Small Fruits. I find the reason why we bave such poor crops of berries is that we allow tbe buabes to grow too bigb before we trim In the spring. Borne do not trim at all, allowing the canes to grow six or eight feet high, which gives the wind a great hold on tbe busheg and also lets tbe growth remain green much longer, not giving the wood time to ripen before tbe hard freezing weather, which freezes the bushes about half way down to the ground, and Injures the entire plant Raspberries, other than the tip kinds, should be cut about three feet from tbe ground; blackber ries, 2H to four feet.— F. G. Duffln. Adulterated Milk. Judge Bishop, at Des Moines, decided that If a person buys milk with the knowledge that it contains boraclc acid or any harmless article put In It for tbe purpose of preserving the milk, there Is not adulteration, and that the statute does not apply, but that If a harmful article should be added, or If boraclc acid was put In and tbe milk sold with out giving notice of Its use. It would amount to adulteration In tbe meaning of the statute. In the case under con sideration the purchaser had full knowledge of the fact that boraclc acid was used. Plant Corn Early. Experiments at the Indiana station for six years In succession indicate that corn planted the first week In May gives the heaviest yield. During the same aeries of testa It was shown that three inches Is as deep as the culti vator should be run In corn fields at any time. The ylelda on plats cultivated two Inches deep were about aa heavy as on any of tbe others. There seem* to be but little difference between hill and drill planting. To Destroy Beetle* and Borers.
